Luis Gutierréz the critic Robert Parkers wrote in 2021:

"The 2020 Camins del Priorat regional blend, made from grapes from 101 plots from eight villages in Priorat, is a blend of 55% Garnacha, 15% Syrah, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 8% Cariñena, with a higher percentage of Garnacha and a lower percentage of Cariñena, as in most 2019s. This gives the wines freshness and elegance, liveliness and smoothness. It was fermented with indigenous yeasts in a combination of stainless steel, oak and concrete barrels and aged for four months in barrel and oak casks. This wine is more Priorat than any of the Camins vintages; in fact, no one is planting French grape varieties anymore and many are re-grafting their vines, so the trend in the future may be towards more Garnacha and Cariñena in this wine. This is a very drinkable version of the Camin, less dense than the 2019, from a year that was cooler and had just a hint of herbs. The mouthfeel is velvety with great freshness and very fine tannins. This is the best Camins yet, different from previous years; it should be a commercial success. 226,000 bottles were produced. 2020 was the earliest harvest ever."
